Hidden Fields in Forms
You are just starting to create forms, so you may wonder
why you'd want to have any hidden areas or information.
There may come a time where you want a form to include the
time or date stamp. You may want to get some basic
information about the person who filled out the form - you
can retrieve their OS, IP address, browser and more.
Finally, you may want to have a multi-page form, where they
fill out a little at a time. To do that, you'll need to use
It's very simple, just set the TYPE attribute of the
<INPUT> tag like this -
<INPUT TYPE=HIDDEN NAME="Private info"
VALUE="whatever information you want to include but
keep hidden from the visitor">
And that is it for this week! The
new tags are on the tag page.
Tables are up next week!
